|A pouch can be a great solution|
|This is how some men feel...|
The good thing for caregivers is that the penile pouch does make your life easier and your loved one may not feel as embarrassed as you can easily remove the bag and replace it versus needing to change out their underwear several times a day. You should show them how to change the bag on their own so they can still feel in control of their own body. Nursing homes often use them for their patients that can be slightly mobile and do not wish to have a catheter used. Many men that use the penile pouch report that they are quite comfortable and it gives them about 12 hours of protection. This is great for traveling as you won’t need to stop as frequently and you also do not need to worry about packing multiple adult diapers and other incontinence supplies. As long as you get the right size and you understand how to change out the pouch, you will find that they leave you drier and will not leak.
